Maurice Jones-Drew still believes Jacksonville Jaguars can turn their season around, starting at Wembley on Sunday.

The Jaguars take on San Francisco 49ers in London, the first of four planned visits to the British capital for the franchise over the next four years.

Jacksonville have lost their first seven games of the season but running back Jones-Drew - a three-time Pro Bowler - can see better times ahead.

He said: "Whenever you start 0-7 there are certain ways you can handle it.

"I think the guys have handled it well. It's a challenge to fight out of the hole that we've dug ourselves into.

"We feel like we've got the players who can do that. Certain games we have great execution, other games we don't - and that's the inconsistency that we're trying to defeat.

"It starts in practice. We had a good practice yesterday, we want to put another together (today) and just keep stacking them up until we get ready for Sunday."
